Jonah Raydio

First podcast with Jonah on the road! We were full of piss and vinegar and then Neil took an nap and slept through the beginning of the show. But no matter as we had a great guest in the form of writer/producer Ben Acker. Ben wrote and produced the long running Thrilling Adventure Hour, several comics from your favorite major and minor presses and his newly launched webcomic Kid Midnight.

Ben brings some examples of his songwriting with his buddy Kate Micucci, some covers done by close friends of his and some originals from people we know well enough not to have them sue us.

We talk Ben and his time at a naming company, Skiffle music, Neils trip to interview David Byrne and more. All on this weeks Jonah-less Raydio.

SONGS

L’Tovah Podcast, guys! Jonah got his voice back and was leaving for London later this afternoon, so we got one in while we were all there. It was a classic JRaydio hang. We did the new Music News (now without jokes!), had a jam session of SFX and music to open the show and Jonah talks about the other podcast he’s getting into.

We are going to be banking some episodes in the coming weeks for when Jonah goes on tour with MST3K, so if you got something you want us to hear, you want to yell at us or need that patented “Big Neil Energy” to push that creative project across the finish line, hit us up at names o’ the show at gmail dot com.

Also, that story about the Beatles having a knuckle shuffle group meeting came out after we recorded, so we don’t touch it.

SONGS

Drop Jam is backed by Dirty Vegas

Pressers- Shredders -coming soon

Nightbirds- Obvious from the Album Who Killed Mike Hunchback

Dillinger Four- Coulda Benn a Contender

The Mountain Goats- This Year

Mahononryadio

 

Jonah blew his voice out in Georgia so that means its time for a Mahonaraydio.

 

We scored this entire episode with the sound of some harp music and the running of a fan in the background. We take your tweets, talk Bond, research the most thunderous of bays and talk the “knowledge economy”

 

SONGS

 

Ocean City Defender- Perfect Wish

 

Secret Baby- Bonesaw

 

Octaves- Happy Hunting

 

Nick Ralg- True Love Will Find You (Daniel Johnson cover)

May The Podcast Come Up and Meet You, everyone! We break our streak of having musicians on to discuss comedy by having a comic on to talk music. It’s Kurt Braunohler! And its a great one!

 

We start with Krishna temples, Edinburgh, and Kurts old video team that took him to the festival. But then Kurt brings us one of the most fun games we’ve played on the podcast. Ladies and gentlemen meet “Shame Face Shuffle”

 

Anybody can play. Pull out your Zune-type music player, put that batboy on Library>Shuffle and hit Next. Most embarrassing entry wins the round. Comedy album, first instance, round loss. Second comedy album, re-roll. Possible Shoot The moon situation with overall “coolest in every round” where ultimate winner can be named ultimate loser. Does that apply to Jonah in this game? Listen to find out…

 

Also a prize pack that Neil and Cash put together from things found inter trucks. Look for that prize package to cross over to Doug Loves Movies soon!

 

See Jonah and Kurt in Our Bits Could Be Your Night in Georgia or Kurt this Friday at the Irvine Improv

 

SONGS

 

The Nonsense- Aches and Pains

 

Pretty Matty- Oh Well

 

The Shut Ups- Modern Hell(Buds Camaro)
